Description: The classic strategy gameplay updated into VR. If I had to describe it simply, I would say that it feels like 2017 and 1995 averaged out to 2006. I started this project to get familiar with making VR apps. So naturally, this is my first one. I plan on updating this game as I work on growing my skills.
This game currently features the 3 classic game modes you remember. You can also customize the board size and mine density of your game using the sandbox. The current options extend slightly beyond what was available on those old tube monitors. I need to focus on some optimization before I go beyond a 40 x 40 board.
Review: Mind Sweeper VR is, of course, the classic game of Minesweeper only in VR. This game is as indie as they get and looks VERY basic, but it’s playable I suppose. It might only cost £1.69, but I just can’t recommend it. If it was free I would have suggested you try it for yourself, but even at low cost I recommend you give similar games like MineSweeper VR a go before this one.
